At some point I would say to upgrade your 5870 to a 7950 when they drop in price a bit but otherwise that is a really solid build. I have the HAF 912 and I love it.

thanks i had similiar thoughts,was thinking 7970 but same idea, i did alot of research on tomshardware before build. I dont really think its worth $50 to add 8gb of mem but just feel like i need more. I am really considering another ssd drive due to the performance for games.

No it isn't - you probably will never use all 16GB of RAM. Adding another SSD couldn't hurt - if you want to play BD-R discs on your PC or use it as a backup drive a BD-R burner couldn't hurt either.

I know and I've used plenty of cases in that price range - the Cooler Master Centurion 5 (crap), the Apevia Xplorer (worst case ever), the Antec 300 (decent but no cable management), the Xion X-570 (crap), I could go on and on - the HAF 912 beats all these cases by like 100 points. :lol:

yea i lucked out I almost got the antec 300 for budget reasons but something told me not to,bd-ray I thought bout but i use ps3 to watch that and to be honest i download and convert videos to watch on dvd , Im definitely leaning towards another 64gb or 120gb ssd then thats it untill like you said video card comes down in price
